There have been many concerns in the community of Winter Haven Florida as it relates to the local policing. Many citizens have made complaints of being profiled and stopped for no reason. Some of these stops end with citizens being detained and many of them are saying that officers are falsifying reports to justify their unlawful treatment and obsessive force. When families ask for video evidence to back these false reports, the police department claims they cannot afford to pay for Dash Cams and Body Cams. How convenient for them! This is a recipe for many wrongful stops, arrests, convictions and never ending corruption. With so many technological advancements, this excuse is just simply unacceptable.
We, the law abiding and tax paying citizens of Winter Haven, are demanding that the Winter Haven Police Department, under the direction of Police Chief Charlie Bird, along with the rest of the Command Staff, acquire and deploy the proper use, record keeping and training of Dash Cams and Body Cams. For the safety of the community as well the safety and accountability of each on duty Officer on patrol. We want to achieve this amazing feat in hopes to minimize and eradicate any and all misconduct and misconceptions associated with our local law enforcement officers. This is a collaborative effort, so please work with us to help make our community safer.
